Fathers day gift from my offspring. I also got Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, which look just like they used to. However, they have replaced the head mechanism with cheaper innards that make a barely audible noise when triggered, depriving today’s youth and one middle aged dad of one of the main joys of playing the game.
I’m always calling my kids nerds, but as a term of affection. “Come on nerds, lt’s time for dinner.” Or “Bye bye nerds, I’m going to work.” The other day my wife said she was pushing the kids through the grocery store when my oldest (4) called out to a passing cartload of kids “Out of my way nerds!” So, nerds on a skateboard. It isn’t the first time. There’s a nerd on a skateboard on every bag of Nerds, I thought I posted it before, but the closest thing I could find was Buddy Bears Gummi Bears.
